HBR Ltd launch innovative mobile oxidation unit

HBR Ltd are breaking new ground in the sector with the development of an innovative mobile rig for in-situ chemical injection works.

The company has used its considerable in-house engineering expertise to design and build the unit which has already delivered significant results on a major remediation project in the Midlands.

HBR identified a need for a faster oxidation solution following its work on several remediation projects across the UK involving pharmaceutical, chemical and gas works sites.

The HBR team built a prototype at their site in Essex and spent two months testing the model to ensure its ability to carry out major in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) works.

The new unit features two large mixing tanks capable of injecting up to 50 cubic metres a day of prepared oxidant solution much more quickly than standard equipment. The mobile nature of the rig also makes it easier to manage and move into position while on site.

HBR technical manager James Wilson explains: “We wanted to reduce as many of the time-related costs of ISCO projects as possible and saw the development of a mobile injection rig as a key step in achieving this.

“We are extremely pleased with the rig’s flexibility and operating capacity and on the Midlands project, we reduced the injection works period by over 40 per cent compared with previous technologies. This has a big impact on labour and plant costs, enabling us to offer added savings to existing and future clients.”

The mobile mixing unit will be used by HBR at other sites, and the company has secured a sizeable hire contract with another remediation contractor for Spring 2013. Other companies have also expressed interest in hiring the unit.
